AI art is disruptive as hell. How can we use it in our creative processes? And should we?
In a post yesterday I revisited some of my old writings on transmedia, prompted by the realisation that the use of transmedia storytelling methods is still viewed as something quite new and groundbreaking by a fair number of people working in more traditional media settings. This feels a bit astonishing, as I remember some discussions…Read more Keeping up with the times – with the help of transmedia
I just had the feeling I was back in, say, 2010 or 2012 or thereabouts. No, this has nothing to do with the current state of the world and any correlations to the Mayan calendar-scare (remember that one?) or any disaster movies that were blockbusters back then.

I’ve spent the last few days on the sunny Riviera, immersing myself in MIPFormats, MIPDigital and MIPTV, the biggest market places around when it comes to TV content and, nowadays, increasingly online and mobile and social content as well.

As one of the hardest working sellers I know use to say – selling IP to someone as reluctant as your average media…Read more Bringing convergence to the people
I’ve spent a couple of days at the INPUT 2014 conference in Helsinki, Finland, together with 800 people predominantly from the public service media sector from all around the world. It’s been a couple of days of very in-depth looks at projects from different fields and different territories. I’ve stayed true to the cross-media track…Read more INPUT 2014 – some thoughts

Never has this been more important than now, when a content creator would need to be a great storyteller to have a story to gather an audience around, a good programmer to be able to augment the story with tech that enhances the…Read more Story propagation – what creators can learn from marketing
File this brief post under ”basic things that are really good to keep in mind at all times”. When it comes to cross media creation and transmedia storytelling development, the sky is the limit. You could make a good case for almost any media platform to be included. You could develop strategies for all existing…Read more The art of limiting
